A PSALM ABOUT CHILDREN
By Miriam T. Winter
Children are God's most sacred surprise, a light in the eyes, a lift to heart, a storyline's contribution.
Children mirror Mystery. Children are God's preferred way of being; God's preferred way of seeing the world and all its people.
Our children are not our children. They are given to us and pass through us into worlds of their own making, into risks of their own taking, into futures we will not know.
Our children are reminders of what we like best about ourselves, of when we knew love that gave birth to ourselves, of how we can live beyond ourselves.
When children cry, when children die, the whole world is diminished, for a child's pain is the earth's pain and when an innocent child is abused, none of us is ever the same again.
When children feel they are included, a little hope rises on all horizons, a new dream dances in our generation and seeds are sown for a new creation.
When children are simply children, filling their days with life spilling over, sharing love, sharing laughter, grabbing the whole of their once-upon-a-time, making us believe in happily-ever-after..........anything is possible.
A MESSAGE from Mrs. Bainbridge
Christopher School - BUILDING ON A
TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE -
Our program of Catholic education relies on the
basis of proven success and innovative educational experiences. In doing so, we
develop a foundation of faith in students who have the skills to become
WE AS A CATHOLIC SCHOOL COMMUNITY:
BELIEVE -- that each student enrolled at St. Christopher School is a unique and important person and that every facet of his/her life -- spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social and physical should be developed.
SEEK -- to help each individual develop as thinking, caring Christian who respects all life and has the desire and ability to contribute constructively to the betterment of our world.
REALIZE -- that the educational process goes beyond the school. Thus, the developing of a shared commitment from the community, parents and school is a necessary ingredient in achieving these goals.
Believe ~ Seek ~ Realize
